The most important features, messaging and viewing other profiles, are free and the site is LGBTQ-inclusive.
Along with up to six photos, you can also add more information to your profile about your lifestyle. On top of that, about half of them were an 80 percent match or higher, meaning they are much more likely to be a compatible match.
